What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.


Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Hi,

Struggling to find a straight answer to this despite hours of searching. :unsure:

I need to complete a Form A in order to initiate court ancillary relief.

My problem: The form is geared towords people who want to make a claim against their ex, but I don't, I just want a Clean Break.

Lots more detail to this I won't go in to like negotiation, MIAMs, draft Consent Order, I've agreed to things, she's agreed, changed her mind, wants more, dragging things out etc etc

So. What checkboxes do I use to start the process? Do I go on the basis that my ex might ask for a lump sum etc and just check the orders I think she might want to apply for herself?

Thanks!

How long is the marriage?

Are there any joint assets that you would need to transfer to her?

The form is only a guide for the courts. Just putting lump sum would be fine. What she expects will be clear.

NB if you have already got a good handle on the finances, you could ask for the first hearing to be FDR at which agreement could be reached and an order made.

12 years. No assets other than pensions which are valued about the same.

The note about making first hearing the FDR is a good idea, everything is known and we have a draft Consent Order done (through divorce online). Daft question but how do I ask, is it better to get a solicitor to submit this rather than try to do it myself?

Thanks :)

If you need a bit of support with the process, give our helpline a call to see if one of our services for litigants in person may be useful.

No need to get a solicitor unless you have plenty of spare cash to pay for one.
